FAN VIDEO - The Secret Of Monkey Island - The Three Trials

monkey island fan video

In my opinion there just aren't enough fan videos of Monkey Island.  I mean who wouldn't want to dress up as Guybrush Threepwood, be a mighty pirate and hook up with the beautiful Elaine?  So I had a huge smile on my face when I came across this little gem on YouTube.  It's from Rainy Island Studios and it's full of Threepwood magic as the clever people behind the fan video re-enact the three trials from the Lucasarts game.  In the game The Three Trials were three tasks that the Pirate Leaders said that all pirates must pass.  They included sword fighting, thievery and treasure huntery.  Here comes the blurb below on the video along with the video itself.  Look behind you, a three headed monkey!

This is the first video we made about the game "The Secret Of Monkey Island" in Italy and we replay the three trials of Guybrush Threepwood :) Probably in future we'll produce the sequel :D

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
